Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) Following traditional red fermentation, the wine is aged for one year in French oak barriques, followed by18 months in Slovenian oak casks and six months in bottle

(2007 Vintage) The 2007 Gattinara bursts from the glass with sweet red cherries, tobacco, incense and grilled herbs. There is an immediacy to the 2007 that is quite appealing. At the same time, the firm Nebbiolo tannins are present and serve to balance the wine's more overt leanings.
